Re: HD TV problem

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

How do I replace SMART TV SCREEN MODEL NO : LG 55LM7600 55'' 3D 1080p Full HD LED LCD Smart TV

You cannot replace a screen that big. The manufacturers wont ship it to you. IT has to be done by an authorized service center.

Replace screen broken l32w461

It will be better to buy a new one, instead of trying to replace the screen. If you wish to replace the screen, it will cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV, excluding service charges. Means, you have to spend at least 80% of the new TVs' cost. If you're willing, contact the authorized service center for LG.

I have a 42" Phillips flat panel TV that fell off of the wall and broke the screen. Can it be repaired?

No repair can be done for a broken screen. Replacement only can be done. But it will cost 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV. If you think it is OK, replace it. Otherwise buy a new TV. It will be the best.

I have a 42 inch philips plasma tv with a broken screen, could i replace it with a screen from a panasonic 42 inch tv

No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

I need to replace a broken screen on a sony bravia kdl40ex400. I have worked on a lot of electronics, but never a tv screen replacement. Can i get the parts myself, and if so, is it changable by me?

Yes - just be careful with the ribbon cables. You are going to be replacing the LCD portion - behind it is the backlight assembly. Some may come with the entire assembly in one. You may need to do a little research to get a replacement - use Google to find a distributor.
